Summer is a Comin'

     Stuff happened this week, but like honestly nothing happened.
     We went to zone conference and had to give a thing about the missionary handbook. Speaking Spanish in front of other missionaries stresses me out more than anything. But really no pasa na. Tomorrow for district meeting I am giving (by myself) a two minute lesson on diligence in missionary work. And we have interviews with president and then I am going to Malaga for intercambios, so tomorrow is going to be a busy day.
     After we are done emailing we are going to the chapel and are going to watch "The Best Two Years" with the rest of the district. I have heard watching  "The Best Two Years"is different as a missionary so I guess we will see.
     Okay I am sorry this week was really slow.
An investigator called us Friday to invite us to a choir concert and we called and got special permission to go and we were super excited and then we got there and it started and then a bunch of five year olds walk on stage and then their teacher comes on and plays a simple tune on the piano and they start clapping along to the rhythm. Personally, I thought it was awesome. But I guess our investigator was expecting something more... sophisticated... so he made us leave. Sad day.
     We street contacted this lady that works for Herbal Life and she invited us to come over. She gave us her lesson 1- facials and then asked us for references. It all felt very backwards but we left her with a Book of Mormon.. yay?
     This week for personal study I have been reading Jesus the Christ. If you haven't read it, I suggest you do, and if you have, you should read it again. But I know all of you are probably not going to do that so you should at least watch the Because of Him video. (Sorry if that turns out to be in spanish)
     We have been showing that video to absolutely everyone since Easter. It still makes me emotional every time I watch it. I feel so privileged to be allowed to be a part of the Lord's work. Being a missionary is absolutely amazing.
Well, have a good summer everyone!
I love you!
